Franchising & Distribution

Each business has unique needs regarding the distribution of its products and services. Greensfelder’s nationally and internationally recognized team of franchise and distribution lawyers assists our clients with the legal aspects of their distribution systems. We excel at providing business focused and strategic growth solutions, common sense and practical advice. Our relationships with clients are often continuous: formulating strategic plans when a business decides to develop or restructure its franchise or distribution system, addressing both every-day issues that arise during the operation of the system and the real impasses such as disputes and litigation, and assisting when a business is acquired or merged into another business. Our work involves both domestic and international representations.

Representing clients involved in franchising and distribution requires experience in various legal disciplines. With more than 160 attorneys, Greensfelder has the depth and resources necessary to counsel clients on a variety of legal issues. The attorneys in our Franchise and Distribution group have represented some of the nation’s largest and most well-known franchise and distribution companies, as well as many start-up franchises in a wide range of franchised businesses. They have written and lectured extensively on franchise and distribution topics, have been recognized by their peers for excellence, and are active in the American Bar Association Forum on Franchising, International Bar Association, International Franchise Association, Franchise Brokers Association and Petroleum Marketing Attorneys group.
